11th Commencement Ceremony with Speaker Paul Karasik

May 13, 2017

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VERMONT: This year’s Center for Cartoon Studies Commencement speaker is the critically acclaimed cartoonist and educator Paul Karasik. In addition to being a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Karasik is the co-creator of the graphic novel adaptation of Paul Auster’s City of Glass (with David Mazzucchelli), named by The Comics Journal as one of the “Best Comics of the 20th Century.”

The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) Commencement Ceremony takes place on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at the Barrette Center for the Arts at Northern Stage.

Paul Karasik’s book, The Ride Together, a Memoir of Autism in the Family, (written with his sister, Judy) was chosen by the Autism Society of America as the “Best Literary Work of the Year.” He has edited two books collecting the complete works of cartoonist Fletcher Hanks. The first volume, I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets, received an Eisner Award in 2008.
